    Looks like the ruins of modern Rhodesia may take another battering, bread basket of Africa to basket case in less than 40 years.

    Looks like the military are taking the correct action in a desperate situation.

    In a thread thats about to get pulled.
    I lived an hour from the Zim border for nearly 5 years in South Africa and visited Zim numerous times and it can’t be put into words what has happened in that country under the so called leadership of that **** Mugabe and his hanger on’s!

    Hopefully this will be the change needed but sadly it won’t be as yet another despot takes the reigns and lives a life of luxury whilst citizens live in abject poverty and they do nothing but blame the west for all that is wrong.

    The purge of farmers from their land has done for them and similar is now happening in South Africa!

    Out of the frying pan and into the fire for that country if Mugabe gets ousted, the incumbent is just as bad if not worse than he is, the coup is all about stopping his wife gaining control of the country when he does finally pop his clogs or steps down.... Such a shame, that country had everything at one time but corruption has destroyed it almost beyond repair...!

    Mugabe seemingly under house arrest. I always wonder how bad that actually is, just chillin playing FIFA or something.
